Former Devolution CS Anne Waiguru has requested President Uhuru Kenyatta to form a commission of inquiry into allegations made by businesswoman Josephine Kabura in her affidavit on the NYS saga.

In a statement on Sunday, Waiguru claimed that the allegations made in Kabura’s affidavit are false and unsubstantiated, adding that the timing of its release was suspect.

“If you can remember, the said affidavit somehow appeared only one week after the EACC had produced a letter clearing me of any involvement in the theft at NYS. Anyone can deduce what the intentions of the affidavit were,” stated Waiguru.

“Despite my substantive responses to the preposterous allegations, a narrative continues to evolve that assumes the truth of an affidavit by a person already charged with several crimes, ignoring the fact that the natural inclination of an accused person is to malign their accusers; it is never to name their accomplices.”

She pointed that she had been compelled to respond to the affidavit owing to the public attention that the matter has elicited, saying the allegations included therein against her were ludicrous.

“I have requested His Excellency the president to set up a Commission of Inquiry, under the provisions of the Commissions of Inquiry into the grave allegations made in the Josephine Kabura affidavit so that the truth can come out in full public limelight.”

There had been reports of a possible revocation of the affidavit last week after reports indicated that Kabura had recanted the affidavit.

On Monday last week, Kabura’s lawyer Samson Amberi moved to court to block his arrest and prosecution by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) for allegedly forging an affidavit to implicate Waiguru in the NYS saga.

Kabura however came out to refute the claims saying the affidavit was genuine and its contents were substantive.
